Hidden Bangan

Let us take you off the beaten track and visit the temples that are not yet on all tourist maps and discover the hidden temples of Bagan. We take you to ancient temples and monasteries with mural paintings, temples that have not been cleaned for tourists and places you won’t find hordes of souvenir sellers. A lunch of typical “Myanmar dry zone” dishes is served in a local house far away from tourist busses or souvenir stalls. A fantastic day tour that certainly shows you the secrets of Bagan as only few have seen it.

Sundowners on a Sandbank

Bagan is home to magnificent sunsets and one of our favourite ways to see this is on a boat ride on the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River with sundowners in hand, on a sandbank in the middle of the river 

A picnic in Minnanthu

A great picnic in quiet and beautiful area of Minnanthu village including serving tasty home-cooked lunch under shady tree and visiting some of the lesser-known yet very impressive temples in this area. 

Ghosts, superstitious kings, brutal conquerors and other scary stories

The history of the Bagan temples and the Bagan kingdom does not only have the fairy-tale stories of kings and queens but also the mythical stories of ghosts, spirits and brave heroes! Especially for families with children this tour is developed to make it more interesting for the little ones.

Biking through Bagan

We love Bagan, not just because of the beauty of each temple and not just because of the lack of hordes of tourists. We like Bagan most because of the stunning landscape of ancient temple ruins that seem to be spread around the area and can be best experienced while going around at your own pace on a good quality mountain bike.

Ballooning over Bagan – early morning

Follow the footsteps of the life of Bogyoke (General) Aung San, the national hero who brought independence to Myanmar and his equally popular daughter in this history tour that includes his former residence and other places he made history and a lunch at his former office.

Markets, monasteries and a boat ride to a 12th century hidden cave temple

An ideal excursion by car and boat to discover more of the Myanmar country side, visiting local market, and workshops and a hidden cave temple.

E-Bike & Temple view swing

 The stunning landscape of ancient temple ruins that seem to be spread around randomly in between toddy palms and bamboo huts is ideal to be discovered by e-bike. Your guide will show you some of the most spectacular sceneries of ancient lesser-known temples and stop at a picturesque point for a swing between palms tree .

off-beat day to rural Salay

The charming village of Salay, with ancient temples and monasteries overlooked by most tourists. Discover what real Myanmar countryside feels like with a lively rural market visit, learn the process of making tamarind flakes, visit the historic Yokesone Monastery, the home of U Ba Gyi and have lunch at a monastery.

Discover the Myanmar countryside by bike and boat

One of the best way to explore the Myanmar countryside is by crossing the Ayeyarwaddy River by boat and bike around the villages, farms and fields and see the rural side of daily life in Myanmar. During this leisurely 22 km trip you have plenty of picture opportunities and we stop to explain you more about agriculture and local crafts in the area. And the sunset boat ride at the end is the perfect way to return to Bagan.

Bagan temples & food by night

During this exhilarating excursion we visit some of the Bagan temples after the sun has set. The private guided trip includes the extraordinary Ananda temple entered at a time very few others are around and a beautiful lesser known temple lit by the moon. Experience how the Bagan temples feel like in the evening and wonder if the spirit of the past is still around.
